I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

Ketogenic Diet May Not Work For Everyone

I recently tried a ketogenic diet on my own. It failed horribly, and I ended up in the ER. I did not consult a doctor before. I didn't consult my normal general practice doctor because he doesn't really have a clue about diets. Perhaps another doctor would have been more informed and could have...
